While addressing the VFW convention today in Kansas City, President Trump once again ruffled the media’s feathers when he called them out as “Fake News.” But this, time, there was a twist as the gathered veterans joined in and booed the media:

Video here:

BuzzFeed’s Vera Bergengruen called it “unsettling” that those who fought to defend America and the First Amendment make take issue with the way the media is covering the president:

The Washington Post’s Philip Rucker reports that this sentiment wasn’t unanimous, however:

And we’re pretty sure those in the room weren’t booing WSJ reporter and Marine Corps veteran Ben Kesling:

But it was not all boos and hisses. President Trump brought 94-year-old veteran Alan Jones onstage and promised him an Oval Office tour for the 95th birthday:

And he called every veteran in the room a “national treasure”:

The media just doesn’t get that the people in the room see the president as the guy who just hugged the 94-year-old vet and want to hear more stories like that.
